This is a nice place in a small, open-air mall, the Marikina Shoe Expo (show up early and shop for shoes!). I've been here many times. Lots of fresh, home-made pasta by the owner's wife, Ma. Luisa. Not cheap by Manila standards, but very tasty and worth it! I'm used to world-class wine lists so I'm going to say the... More

We celebrated our anniversary here and it's not really what I have expected, or probably I just assumed too much, since, they said it's a fine dinninng and an authentic Itallian restaurant. We ordered spinach raviolli in truffle sauce, some pasta with ham, olive oil..etc, ( i forgot the name) and four cheese pizza, but, there's nothing really to rave... More

After hearing great things about Bellini's I came to their restaurant with much expectations. But I found myself quite disappointed. The service was very good. Our waiter was efficient and I appreciate that the owner, Mr. Roberto Bellini checked our table several times and even helped clear our table. I'm just quite disappointed with the food. I tried the 4... More

Fresh from the typhoon. We trooped to Bellini's at Cubao Shoe Expo. As we entered the restaurant, it smelled like an old moldy kitchen. We were escorted by the waiter at the back of the dining area. The lighting was good; the wall is decorated with a mural. As we sat down, the waiter gave us the menu. We had... More

I heard about Bellini's along time ago ever since it was featured in a local blockbuster movie. My expectations about the restaurant was quite high because it looked good in the film. Physical Appearance I was surprised to find this one of a kind restaurant in a peaceful alley in Cubao. I was not that impressed when I saw it's... More

Roberto Bellini decorates his restaurant with images from his colorful past life as a papparazzo and with iconic images of Italy. These make dining at Bellini's not so much a meal as a sojourn into a man's life and his gullet, or rather, his mother's palate. Many of the recipes came from the kitchen of his mother and the older... More

Great ambiance and delicious food. You get to meet the owner since he goes around and says hello to everyone. If you want a quiet place with good food, then this is the place for you! I brought my whole family here and they all loved it!

I just discovered recently that there was a great Italian food near our place. The restaurant is located at the Cubao Expo at the Araneta center. The place looks a bit old but has a feel of Italy in every aspect of it complete with a clone of the Tower of Pisa. The food was perfect especially their appetizers. We... More

a nondescript italian restaurant at the heart of bustling cubao. you will never guess there's that kind of restaurant serving very good italian dishes at the marikina shoe expo. their cheese and cold cuts platter paired with wine is really an experience to savor. the pastas are obviously superior than most. it is worth its price.
